Procuring goods or services under federal grants can be confusing due to the many rules that grantees need to comply with. The new OMB Supercircular/Omni-Circular makes many significant changes to the federal procurement rules. Some of the key requirements include a Micro-Purchase Threshold, an increase in the Simplified Acquisition Threshold, and rules limiting making procurements without competition from a sole source. In addition, requirements for conducting competitive procurements, performing cost and price analyses, and avoiding conflicts of interest have also changed. As a federal grantee, you need to comply with these and other rule changes or risk losing your grants. Please join L'Kel C. Little, attorney at law at Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell, as she takes you through the Supercircular/Omni-Circular procurement requirements, emphasizing the key requirements and highlighting potential pitfalls.
